estimation. so i think this is as much about precluding where they see the obama administration going as it is about this nomination. >> john: and that he wants to change the pentagon on an constitutional level. joe, your thoughts? >> well, my thoughts, yes that's exactly right. he's going to change the pentagon as an institution because as a former senator he knows the ins and outs of how the budget process works knows how to get the numbers down. he and obama are kindred spirits. and they both kind of have the same world-view. they both are willing to be contrary to their own party loyalties. they're both willing to do the tough decisions to make decisions that won't necessarily be popular with their own people and get it done for the good of the country. so i think hagel brings credibility to that position, not only as somebody who has been a long-time public servant but someone who understands military culture and who has actually been there. that credibility is going to go a long way. i think from the white house perspective this could be a bit of muscle flexing for the second-te
. according to the obama administration the rate of increase in healthcare spending went up 3.9% in 2011. a mall amount. it's the same increase that we saw in 2009 and 2010. for the record those are the lowest up ticks in more than half a century. pretty good. now for the bad news. anthem blue cross wants to hike their premiums by 26%. insurers in florida and ohio have already increased patients' rates by 20%. how is this happening and what can be done to stop it? we're going to put those questions to dave jones, who is leading the charge against the wild rate hikes that the insurance companies are planning. he's coming to us from sacramento. dave welcome inside "the war room." >> a pleasure to be with you jennifer. >> jennifer: tell us for people who have not been following this, why are these rate hikes happening in some states and not in others? >> the problem in california and other states is that there is nothing in the affordable care act or in state law that gives the insurance regulator the authority to reject excessive health insurance or hmo rate hikes. that's a glaring loophol
in washington continues to turn. and cabinet secretary has resigned out of the obama administration. who was it? well tell you in just a few moments. first, we'll go to out to los angeles, our current news update with lisa ferguson. >> hey peter. good morning bill. good morning everyone. more gun debate as vice president joe biden takes on a new round of meetings along with attorney general eric holder. first they'll speak with wildlife and sporting groups at 11:45 this morning. on to gun owner's groups including the nra and representatives from the entertainment industry this evening. kathleen sebelius wills attend some of the meetings. it is a big step for president obama's new gun violence task force launched in the wake of the massacre at sandy hook elementary. but it did not necessarily leave many with high expectations. businesses that sell a lot of guns like walmart will also be in on some meetings. those groups are more likely to be influenced by the nra since they're making a big profit off those firearms. and they do not want to appear too entrenched in the white house's anti-gun push
't there more prominent women being looked at in these positions? that may not be the obama administration's fault. it may be a fault of why aren't these women being promoted more to begin with why is sus afternoon rice pretty much the only person being mentioned for secretary of state? there should be more women since women make up more than half the population. it's getting better that they are at least mentioned for many. for many years obviously there were no women in the cabinet. but it's not good enough. i think the obama administration is saying we are noticing you are not putting women in, i think is important. >> amanda, why didn't we see the same kind of reaction particularly from the right, you know, when bush was approximatelypresident? i found it kind of striking yesterday on "meet the press"that, you know, mike murphy and hailee barber were making shots. >> on diversity. >> exactly. it's just -- it kind of begs the question of credibility from the attackers. >> uh-huh. >> do you think it's a fair point? >> well, i think that -- i mean this may say a
institute says the obama administration spent $18 billion on immigration enforcement last fiscal year and that amount, get this, is more than the budgets than all other federal law enforcement agencies combined. nonpartisan think tank focuses on global immigration issues and the report found that u.s. government has spent more than $187 billion on immigration enforcement laws since 1986 and since then, there have been more immigration-related criminal prosecutions than cases generated by the justice department. npi concludes because of the money spent the actions taken and the case volume, it is fair to say the obama administration has made immigration enforcement its highest criminal law enforcement priority. >>> the administration's economic priority right now is the raising of the debt ceiling. u.s. has gotta lift it by the end of february or early march or else it will default on its fiscal obligations. this should be a routine exercise but republicans once again are threatening to hold the debt limit increase hostage in exchange for spending cuts which happened back in august of
